Labster only offers web-based virtual labs.

Google is dropping support of its virtual reality platform (Daydream).

As a result, Labster has paused all support for our virtual reality (VR) simulations as of January 1, 2021. Our focus will be to grow and improve our web-based virtual labs.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team if you have any questions or are in need of assistance.
